Michigan State senior wide recover, Keith Nichols, may have saved the day for the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday night. Nichols was the recipient of this bomb from quarterback. Kirk Cousins. The play was originally ruled to be down at the one yard line, but instant review later ruled it a touchdown, giving the Spartans a 37-31 victory over the Badgers.
Michigan State fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter, answered with 23 in the second and never trailed from there. MSU was able to capitalize on the special teams, blocking a punt for a TD and field goal.
Michigan State, 6-1 and 3-0 in the Big Ten, is now in the driver seat of the B1G Championship Game and a possible Rose Bowl Game birth.
